Windows 10: Sign-In Options Menu Won't Load

    Sign-In Options Menu Won't Load

    Good morning. I've been struggling with the annoying issue of not being able to switch back to using a PIN to log in, and found a guide that said it would reset the PIN option if I cancelled in the middle of creating a new PIN. I did so, and when I went into the settings to create the PIN (which had indeed been reset), I got an error message. Thinking all I needed was a reset, I restarted the computer. However, now the Sign-In Options menu won't load (the little dots just slide across the screen).

    My suspicion is that I corrupted that section of my user profile, but I don't really know how to fix it without doing a full clean install.

    Me too, sort of

    I too lost my sign-in option and I've been looking for solutions. But it's interesting that perhaps there could be something corrupted in the pin option, because I too cancelled the "pin" after starting (it was taking too much time). I don't know if my lack of sign-in option is related, but it's worth considering. But sorry, no solution yet.

    ps. For me, the "SFC /SCANNOW" solution does not work and "manage credentials" also does not work.
